The Story

Every vintage presents a new challenge to create high quality wines that will improve with age.

After blending, the wine is left to age in a 1200-barrel capacity air-conditioned cellar with controlled humidity levels. 25 to 35% of the barrels are replaced every year with new ones from the best coopers.

A smaller 200-barrel capacity cellar is reserved for the white wines.

The tasting room is located between the two cellars and it is here, with the greatest of care, that the blending is carried out. With the advice of oenologist Michel Rolland, the owners and the cellar master create a blend that will give appropriate structure to the complexity and elegance that characterizes the wines of Malartic-Lagravière, thereby producing wines with a potential to age.

Written Notes

Dark purple red with violet hue and black core. Well structured nose with concentrated aroma, reminiscent of blackberries and blackcurrant jam, toasted oak, dark chocolate and balmy spices. On the palate well structured and balanced with full-bodied character and excellent length.

Malartic Lagraviere Pessac Leognan Medium full plum, considerable concentration on the nose, soy, perfume. This certainly has the vintage’s texture on the palate. The finish is quite sizeable too. Solid extraction. Good balanced finale. 91-94/100 2025-2040
